Ideas and How-to's

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS

PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Evenly moist, well-drained loams (e.g., sand-clay mixture). Prefers a slightly acidic soil pH between 6.5 and 7.0.
Light: Full sun to part shade - Will grow well in a variety of part shade situations, including open sun-dappled conditions or light shade with several hours of morning sun or early afternoon sun. Plants can grow in close to full shade, but typically are less vigorous and more open with decreased foliage density. When grown in full sun, plant foliage is more likely to scorch, bronze in winter or suffer from mite attacks.
Water: Evenly moist
Spacing: 2 to 4 feet
Fertilizing: Roots appreciate a good organic (e.g., bark or compost) mulch (1-2"). Apply a balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 ratio fertilizer, or slow release fertilizer (such as Osmocote), after the second year of growth by spreading it evenly over the surface of the soil (follow label directions), and watering it in,
Winterizing: Boxwood is best sited in locations sheltered from strong winds, with, if possible, some protection from full winter sun. Foliage may bronze in winter when exposed to half day to full day sun. Winter winds can remove moisture from leaves at a rapid rate, often resulting in dehydration and bronzing. Carefully remove heavy snow accumulations as quickly as practicable to minimize stem/branch damage.
Maintenance & Pruning: Plants are generally tolerant of pruning and shearing. Pruning should never be done prior to the last spring frost date. Pruning too early in spring often promotes tender new growth that may be damaged or killed by a late spring frost. Avoid cultivating around plants because they have shallow roots.

Received our order yesterday ( 24 boxwood) and was blown away at the quality. We ordered a few boxwoods from another on-line company to compare as they were a little cheaper, but the quality was significantly inferior. Glad we went with you guys
